contnuing education

so taking the advice of posters, I have driven the 99 boxster...and realized the 2.5 engine is much less fun than the one in the 2000 boxster s. that I also drove..it also felt the suspension was a bit looser but that may be due to the miles(54k vs. 28k)...interesting the dealer dropped the price on the 's' from $19,8 to $17,5-looking at the car fax the car had been serviced but had a lot of issues in its early years-computer module twice, spoiler replacement..the dealer on the 99 boxster went from the ridiculous $17,9 to $15k but there was no service history.....tomorrow I hope to drive the 03 boxster with 13k miles-its engine should be in between the two already driven so it will be interesting. I hope these posts aren't annoying fellow posters.

Personally I'd take the 03 over the others due to the improvements that occured that year. There have been numerous debates over older S vs new base model on here and everybody has an opinion, neither being wrong. Keep us posted on which one you decide on.
